If you have a fear of flying this would NOT be the book you want to read before or while on a plane!
T. J. Newman’s opening is so descriptive I actually felt nauseas as if I was on the plane with everyone else. The author brings you out of your safe, comfortable environment and forces you to face the worst nightmare of everyone who chooses to defy gravity.
That descriptive talent continues as the reader is brought into another further devastating situation. Or maybe just as a mom I was ultra sensitive as it further enhanced my belief no strangers are allowed in my home without someone else I know here.
Newman had me glued to the book and completely ignoring the world around me as I dived headlong into this amazing thriller! Much to my daughter’s happiness since I let her have free reign to do what she wanted while I binged through, I just could NOT put this down. I needed to know what was going to happen, who was involved, why, and most importantly how it was going to end.
There was definitely a very post-9/11 feel in the last chapters. I still remember the sense of patriotism and community that soaked the very air Americans were breathing and Newman managed to capture a small essence of that in her characters.
This is the kind of book you’ll turn your phone on ‘Do Not Disturb’ for because the emotional waves that roll over you will be powerful and addicting to the end. I found myself nearly dropping the book to pump my fist in the air and cheer at one point wanting to join in because I got so swept up in the tidal wave.
It also makes for a great Book Club read as you and your friends play the ‘What would you do’ game with different character roles.
